KETO LOW-CARB BREAKFAST BOMBS (HEART HEALTHY)
Love these Keto Low-Carb Breakfast Bombs! I think you will too.
While getting my hair cut the other day, my stylist Krystal (who also lives a Keto lifestyle), shared a breakfast idea with me. I revised the recipe a little and tried it out with ideal results.
Hence, the Breakfast Fat Bomb was born. Fat Bombs are loaded with healthy fat-rich ingredients, like coconut oil and avocado. Bombs satisfy cravings and fill you up quickly when you are on the go. Bombs can be savory or sweet. Essentially, bombs provide energy and nutrition.
WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO LOW-CARB BREAKFAST BOMBS?
These Keto Low-Carb Breakfast Bombs combine protein from eggs with avocado. Avocados are a highly nutritious fruit that are rich in healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. One medium avocado contains approximately 250 calories, 21 grams of fat, 12 grams of carbohydrates, and 3 grams of protein. In addition, avocados are an excellent source of dietary fiber, potassium, vitamin K, vitamin E, vitamin C, and B vitamins. The healthy fats found in avocados are primarily monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which can help to lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. The high fiber content of avocados can also help to promote digestive health and regulate blood sugar levels.
WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF THE KETO LOW-CARB BREAKFAST BOMB?
As for taste, the Keto Low-Carb Breakfast Bombs have a salty and savory taste with fattiness (creamy) on the inside and crunchiness on the outside.
WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO LOW-CARB BREAKFAST BOMBS?
You may want to enjoy a Keto Low-Carb Breakfast Bomb as a snack with a glass of wine. Choose a light, fruity white wine. The wine’s crisp acidity will nicely contrast with the fattiness of the bombs. Examples include Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Blanc, Vinho Verde, Chenin Blanc, brut sparkling wine. You might also want to harmonize the wine’s character with the bombs. Choose a big, buttery white like Chardonnay to match the healthy fattiness in the bombs.
Wine Tips: To maintain your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, choose low-carb, low-sugar, and low-alcohol wines that are free of additives and artificial coloring. Include your wine carb macros as part of your meal. Remember, your liver will process alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Your body will also metabolize alcohol as fuel before using food. This can slow fat burning and may cause your body to store carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Alcohol consumption also stimulates the appetite. So, drink low-sugar, low-carb, and low alcohol wines in moderation.
WHAT ARE OTHER KETO LOW-CARB BREAKFAST BOMB COMBINATIONS?
There are so many wonderful ingredient combinations from which to choose for your breakfast bomb. Rather than rolling the bomb in super seeds, choose crumbled bacon.
Your bombs can also combine eggs with ground beef, chicken, or turkey. Add green pepper and/or onion if you like. Be sure to cut all ingredients very small so that you can still roll the bomb into a ball. And rather than mayo add cream cheese. The cream cheese will make the bombs a little firmer. Or you can add a healthy oil instead of mayo or cream cheese, such as avocado or MCT oil. The fat will keep you satisfied.
WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS IN THE KETO LOW-CARB BREAKFAST BOMB?
The ingredients in this particular bomb are hard-boiled eggs, fresh avocado, power seeds, and seasoned salt.
My husband and I eat a lot of eggs, so we purchase them locally from a farmer. The eggs are pasture-raised. So we know the eggs come from happy chickens treated humanely. If you buy eggs at the supermarket, do a little research to find out if the eggs are actually pasture-raised.
Fresh avocado: For this recipe, you are going to need a large and very ripe avocado. Firm ones won’t work. Just make sure the avocado is not so ripe that it’s browning inside.
If the avocado yields to firm gentle pressure you know it’s ripe and ready to eat. Ripe, ready-to-eat avocados may have a darker color. However, the color can vary, so it is best to go by feel as well as color. They have a soft, but firm touch. If very soft with dents, the avocado is probably overripe. Do not use under or over-ripe avocados. The creaminess is essential.
Mayonnaise: Hunt for a mayo that has zero carbs or make your own.
Power Seeds: Here is my power seed combination:
- 2 tbsp Golden flax seed
2 tsp hulled hemp seed
2 tbsp chia seed
The seed mix makes this salad super nutritious. Flax seeds possess protein, fiber and Omega-3. Hemp seeds are also packed with protein and Omega-3 and are also a great source of:
- Vitamin E
- Iron and Zinc
- B vitamins
- Vitamin B-6
Keto Season Salt: You can include whatever ingredients you prefer in your Keto season salt. The garlic powder and onion powder are high in umami, giving the seasoning depth and roundness of flavor. You can also add pepper if you like. I prefer to keep my pepper intake separate and add freshly ground black pepper to my meal.
